how does she cope? women pushed to new limits in the gaza strip

Friday, November 22, 2019

In 2019, UNRWA commissioned a study into how women experience today’s conditions in the Gaza Strip, intending to strengthen people’s understanding of today’s situation. How does a local woman cope with enduring conflict, a 52 per cent unemployment rate, a 69 per cent food insecurity rate and a 53 per cent poverty rate? Over a hundred women were consulted from different areas and across the social spectrum, in discussion forums, interviews and home visits. This report captures findings of those consultations, and as much as possible includes perspectives of local women themselves.
